HOLLISTON HOME REPAIRS

Our Home Repair program conducts critical repairs so women and families can remain safely in their home with pride and dignity. The program focuses on health, life, and safety/code issues. Women Build will be part of two consecutive deck demolition and construction projects in Holliston essential for the safety of the respective homeowners.

521-523 SUNDERLAND ROAD, WORCESTER BUILD

These two single-family homes are well underway! Your build team will help with projects such as building porches, hanging drywall, painting exterior siding, laying the flooring, and more! Specific tasks vary depending on site progress.

Once complete, these 1,560 square feet homes will have 3 bedrooms and an optional 4th bedroom on the 1st floor, 2 bathrooms and full basement. Located in an accessible area for shopping, schools, parks, and highways, two local low-income families will build strength and stability through affordable homeownership.

Some outdoor projects with limited dates are available for this duplex home build, so be sure to reserve your date soon!

ABOUT WOMEN BUILD

Women Build brings the community together to help local low-income women and their families achieve a more stable and secure life through affordable homeownership. Over 75% of local Habitat homeowners are women.

Men are welcome to participate! Teams fundraise or are sponsored (or both!) and then build for a day, which helps contribute to making Habitat homes affordable. Through shelter, we empower!
